Loans will be approved by the Board in January 2018, with payments disbursed in February. Should you decide to apply for a loan under the Program, please take care to be as thorough as possible when you apply. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
The Loan Repayment Program offers loans to graduate students pursuing degrees to become CRNPs, CNMs, and CRNAs who commit to working full-time in an Area of Critical Need in Alabama for a period of at least 18 months for each year’s worth of loans received.
An Area of Critical Need is presently defined by the Board, according to the law, as any area of the state that is not within five (5) miles of an area identified by the US Census Bureau as “urbanized.”
Further information, including laws governing the program, the loan application, and the map of eligible areas, is available in the Advanced Practice Loan Repayment Program section on the ABN website.
